1.) What does PRP Stand For?
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is literally the patient’s own blood, drawn and then processed so that only the enriched cells, or platelet-rich plasma remains.
2.) How does PRP help with hair loss?
By injecting PRP into the desired areas, essential proteins go to work on stimulating natural hair growth by working on improving hair follicles and prolonging the growing phase of the hair cycle. In addition, the PRP treatment helps repair blood vessels and promote cell growth.
3.) How does this treatment compare with other options?
There’s only two FDA-approved medications focused on treating hair loss (finasteride and minoxidil) and not only do you have to take these medications for a long period of time before you see results, there’s also side effects such as possible itching of the scalp and sexual dysfunction in men.
4.) Who is this treatment good for?
Though the option can work for most, PRP for hair loss is ideal for those who are starting to notice that their hair is thinning and wanting to halt and reverse thinning. For those wanting to skip medications and some of their nasty side effects, PRP is completely natural and from your own body, so no side effects to ensue. If you’re not a fan of painful and timely procedures and still want fantastic results, PRP for hair loss is fantastic option.
